Happy Sunday! We woke up to overcast skies this morning and temperatures in the low 50s. And today’s warm front will keep temperatures in the 70s for most areas along and south of I-20. We’ll also see the return of sunshine amid a partly cloudy sky.

Tomorrow, a cold front will drop our temperatures and bring the threat of severe weather.

Tonight, temperatures will hang out in the 60s under a mostly cloudy sky. Overnight, showers and non-severe storms are possible.

Monday morning into the afternoon, as the cold front sweeps southeast, showers and storms will increase. The latest Storm Prediction Center outlook has a Marginal Risk (1/5) from Claiborne Parish down through the southernmost areas of Bossier and Caddo parishes and into San Augustine County in East Texas. A slight risk covers the very eastern and southern edges of the ArkLaTex with an Enhanced risk clipping the southern corner of Natchitoches and Winn parishes.

The main threats will be for strong damaging wind gusts and an isolated tornado or two. Can’t rule out the threat for large hail as well.

By late afternoon into the early evening, the threat of severe weather will be out of the ArkLaTex and farther to our east.

Colder air rushes in behind the front, dropping overnight temperatures into the mid-30s.

Tuesday, highs will only climb into the low 50s with overnight lows near freezing and below.

Have a great Sunday!
